I know you've heard me say before, "I'm so old-school Facebook, I still say "THE Facebook." Well, it's true. Now that we've established my Facebook legacy, I have some advice for you:
Set an alarm to log into Facebook at 9:01 p.m. PST this Friday and claim your vanity URL at that time.
You see, Facebook profile URLs are really ugly. Right now, mine reads, "http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25901795." This is not an attractive URL like "twitter.com/paolojr" that you'd want to publicize or put on a business card.
To solve this problem, Facebook announced that vanity URLs (Read: pretty URLs) would become available on June 12 at 9:01 p.m. PST (or June 13 at 12:01 a.m. EST). So now that ugly URL above will just read "facebook.com/paolojr." Nice, huh?
Even if you don't think you need a vanity URL because you don't care, you still do. Who knows when you will ever take the initiative to clean up your personal brand? Do your future-self a favor and take the minute to log onto Facebook and claim your vanity URL. Thank me later.
